about me

“Owl hasn’t exactly got Brain, but he Knows Things”

A. A. Milne – Winnie-the-Pooh (1926)

Humbly (with a rumbly tumbly), I admit I am a writer, published both traditionally and through self-publishing. I have always revered the written word. I recognize it’s power to move, to provoke emotion, to entertain. I started reading before I began school and had written my first book by age seven, about a girl and her horse. No surprise there. Not such an amazing feat, I suppose, as it was only 36 half-size pages on notebook paper, although it did have pencil and crayon illustrations. I folded it up and stapled it so it would resemble a real, live book (or so I convinced myself) and knew right then and there I wanted to be an author.

On this site, you will find information about the books I have written by utilizing the menu above, and also in my blogs, which contain excerpts, news, bits about the writing experience itself, as well as the craft.

I am always impressed by writers, songwriters and others who shape words for the world to enjoy. Therefore, I have interviewed some of these wonderful people. You can find the interviews on my blog.

My blog also contains a spewing of my thoughts like silly string from a can. I share adventures and misadventures, occasional whimsy and  occasional knowledge (like Owl, I do Know Things), photos to illustrate my verbal spates, or sometimes on their own. I do tend to go on about my garden, too, in all it’s, ahem, glory.

Last, but not least, on a really personal note, I LOVE Christmas, and blog about projects, offer seasonal photos, and other, er, stuff (lol).

Thanks for stopping by!
